In the latest in our series of webinars, members of Allen & Overy’s Global Employment team discussed the significant issues and challenges that employers need to prioritise in relation to managing and supporting their workforce as we continue to navigate the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.

This webinar focused on the implications of the vaccine for employers and answered the most common questions clients are asking, including:

  • Can employers require employees to be vaccinated before they return to work?
  • Can employees refuse to return to work if their colleagues have not been vaccinated?
  • In what cases do employers need to make an accommodation for employees who do not want the vaccine?
  • What are the data privacy issues?
  • What are the potential liability issues?
